Watch the Thrones: Kit Harington to become the New Face of Jimmy Choo Man

-------

Kit Harington

Here’s a juicy tidbit of news that should help tide over Game of Thrones fans eagerly awaiting the season four premiere on April 6. This morning, Jimmy Choo announced that Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow in the award-winning HBO fantasy series, will star in the accessory label’s forthcoming Fall ’14 men’s campaign. In addition to modeling the latest range of shoes and bags, the ruggedly handsome 27-year-old actor will also serve as the face of Jimmy Choo Man, the label’s debut men’s fragrance launching in September. While previews of the ads have yet to be released, we wouldn’t be disappointed if they looked something like the image above superimposed with luxe leather goods. The brand’s creative director, Sandra Choi, told Style.com, “Kit has an innate confidence, an effortless presence and attitude. He has an overtly masculine style and a rebellious sense of humor as well as being a very talented actor. He is the perfect Jimmy Choo Man.”

Scandal, Horror, and Lots of Dirty Politicians Take the 2013 Emmy Nominations

-------

Kerry Washington at the 2012 Emmy AwardsAfter hearing this morning’s announcement of the 2013 Emmy nominations, it seems that little has changed in TV land since 2012. After a somewhat controversial second season, Girls is still going strong, and the ever-trendy Game of Thrones, 30 Rock, Breaking Bad, and Louie all earned mentions, too. Unsurprisingly, Emmy veterans Mad Men, Downton Abbey, and Homeland were all nominated once (or twice, or five times) again. Other notable nods went to funny women Jane Lynch for Glee, Julia Louis-Dreyfus for Veep, and Amy Poehler for Parks and Recreation.

Newcomers included juicy dramas Scandal and Nashville, but the only real surprise was the Netflix series House of Cards. The political saga earned nine nominations, including Best Drama Series, and marks the first time the Emmys have included an online-only program.

In terms of quantity, American Horror Story: Asylum tops the list with nominations in seventeen categories. But the more-is-more game has a few other players: Saturday Night Live earned a hearty fifteen nominations, as did HBO’s Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra. The film’s Michael Douglas and Matt Damon were each nominated for Best Actor in a Miniseries or Movie, and Steven Soderbergh is up for Best Director. Of course, we’ll be keeping our eyes on the red carpet to see what stars like Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series nominee Kerry Washington (left), Tina Fey, Claire Danes, and Kiernan Shipka don to the awards on September 22, and we’re also eager to hear who takes the win for best costumes—crowd favorites like Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones, and Downton Abbey are all vying for the prize. See a list of the big nominees, below.

Gwendoline Christie: Glamazon Warrior

-------

Most know Gwendoline Christie for her role as the armor-clad Brienne of Tarth on HBO’s fantasy smash Game of Thrones (get ready, the new season kicks off March 31). But when Ms. Christie’s not running through a Westeros battlefield, she’s a full-fledged member of London’s tight-knit fashion pack. You might find her cheering (and we mean cheering) at a good LFW show, squeezed into the front row between Princess Julia and Lulu Kennedy (Christie never misses the runways of close friends like Roksanda Ilincic, Louise Gray, Giles Deacon, and Henry Holland, just to name a few), and the bulk of her GOT press wardrobe was courtesy of pal Richard Nicoll. The six-foot, three-inch actress actually got her start modeling in student shows at the London College of Fashion and Central Saint Martins. “I feel quite passionately about London Fashion,” Christie told Style.com. “I think some of the most creative and interesting and brilliant people I know are involved in fashion, and I’m lucky enough that they’re my friends.”

Naturally, however, playing a die-hard warrior will have an effect on one’s look. “I had to cut my hair for Game of Thrones, which I found really hard. I find it quite embarrassing to admit that, but I think a lot of a woman’s femininity is tied up with her hair. Afterward, I had quite a big style overhaul,” says the actress, noting she used to study film-noir stars and covet a “sex bomb” Marilyn Monroe aesthetic. “Now, I look to people like Jean Shrimpton, Katharine Hepburn, Twiggy, and Greta Garbo in her more masculine stage.” Christie’s since embraced her ultra-androgynous makeover (pretty on trend, if we do say). “I think that’s more interesting—like a modern reimagining of femininity.” Continue Reading “Gwendoline Christie: Glamazon Warrior” »

Girls Allowed: The 2012 Emmy Nominations

-------

It’s hard not to wonder about the overlap between Emmy voters and Twitter obsessives this year. The nominations for the annual primetime TV awards skews to the young, the cool, and the zeitgeist-y. Proof? Look no further than the presence of just about every show that’s been a hipster (and, to large part, critics) favorite: Girls (overcoming some bad press to get a Best Comedy Series nod), New Girl, Louie, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey—all got their due. So did Kristen Wiig (Best Actress in a Comedy series, for her tearful final season of SNL), the cult-worshipped English actor Benedict Cumberbatch of Sherlock, and pop culture’s favorite curmudgeons, Louis C.K. and Larry David. (This year also marks what must be the historic first time that a nominee for Best Actress—Lena Dunham (pictured), Girls—dressed up as a nominee for Best Actor—Louis C.K., Louie—for Halloween. It’s also likely the first time that an actress has been nominated, as Margaret Cho was, for playing Kim Jong-il—in a comedy.) Leading the pack are Mad Men (with 17 nominations) and Homeland (with nine nominations). The awards will be broadcast on September 23.
